Hello Brighton!

Last week was my Bank Holiday weekend and with the weather this bloomin' beautiful it would've been a crime to not head towards the coast.Not having the finances to fly away to the beautiful Riviera in Southern France, I found my British equivalent... well sort of. Brighton is know for its beach (which has won an award apparently) and with many people telling me how marvellous the city is I had to see it for myself.

The weather was amazing and I had such a lovely time at the coast. Brighton is an amazing city and so cheap, compared to London that is. It reminded me of a small beach-town back in the Netherlands where I grew up - childhood memories are the best. How the beach was you ask? Horrible. Little did I know that it was a beach full of rocks, the size even bigger than the 2 pound coin. Though it was good to leave the hectic city for a day and just relax a bit (though Brighton was packed that day), already planning on visiting another city next Bank Holiday - Cambridge or Bath perhaps? At the end of the day I know I'm a city girl and am very glad I live in London, even when it's dubbed as 'the city of fog'. 

What have you been up to this Bank Holiday?




  1. Aww no, didn't realise you weren't aware it was a stone beach! Ha. There are definitely nicer beaches in the UK, but I like the fact that in Brighton you get both the city and seaside vibes together.
    If you get the chance to go elsewhere while you're still in the UK then I would highly recommend you going down to Cornwall, on the south coast. I'm from near there an have spent loads of time down there throughout my life. There are so many cute little seaside villages as well as beautiful sandy beaches - my favourite place down there is St Ives :)

    1. Haha, well it's okay, shame on me for not doing a research prior to going. Ooh will definitely look into Cornwall and St. Ives - it sounds already amazing :-). x
